It cannot be denied: in the virtual world, Kim Kardashian is incredibly popular.
So, on the occasion of her 32nd birthday, the talent-free reality star has taken to her blog and sent out a message to her millions of online followers.
"I just want to say thank you so much for all the sweet birthday messages you guys have been leaving today on my blog, Twitter and Facebook!!" Kardashian writes. "I am so blessed to have friends, family and fans who support me every day. I’m feeling very loved. Thank you all!! Xo."
And how did Kim spend the special occasion?
By being whisked away to Italy by Kanye West in a totally unplanned event that definitely did not include an alert to the paparazzi overseas.
They just happened to be present when Kanye presented his girlfriend with a rose on the streets of Venice. What a coincidence!
"Italy is so beautiful! Best Birthday ever!!!" Kim Tweeted soon afterward, making her countless "friends" feel as if they were actually a part in this concocted scenario.
Seriously, wise up, people.
